Cofounder of Starfix magazine, producer and director Nicolas Boukhrief is a cinema enthusiast.
He has been working with Mathieu Kassovitz, Christophe Gans, Gaspar Noé, and he directs his own films.
Le Plaisir (et ses petits tracas) came out in 1997, then Cash Truck in 2003, starring Jean Dujardin and Albert Dupontel.
Always at ease with dark crime films, he directed Cortex in 2008 and Gardiens de l'ordre in 2009.
In 2015, his film Made in France dealing with young outcasts' radicalization, was shot just before the attacks in Paris and caused a sensation by anticipating the facts.
His latest film, La confession, came out in March 2017 starring Marine Vacth et Romain Duris.
As the president of the jury of this 19th edition, there is no doubt that Nicolas Boukhrief will take a wise look at the new generations of directors.
